MLB News: Korean left-handed starter for Blue Jays, gives possible date of return to GL, after Tommy John

The left-handed pitcher Korean, Hyun Jin Ryusaw its 2022 season interrupted in mid-June, when a second episode of Forearm pain required Tommy John surgery. Now, more than six months after that procedure, the former All-Star is on his way to recovery.

Speaking to reporters in his home country of South Korea, Ryu said his rehabilitation process is proceeding on schedule. The veteran starter indicated that he hopes to return to the Toronto Blue Jays in Julyapproximately 13 months after undergoing surgery:

All-Star festivities are scheduled for July 9-13, but a return early in the unofficial second half of the season seems like a rough date as it stands for the 35-year-old, 6-foot-1 Asian. .

Of course, that depends on the future steps in his rehabilitation. Any sort of hiccup or delay once Ryu launches again could push that schedule back. However, if all goes well, it’s possible he could play a role on Toronto’s pitching staff in what the team hopes will be another postseason run.
